    I went to Congress Equipment because I was seriously considering the Ferris 3100. I needed a demo on my property because I needed to know how well, and how fast is would cut on my very rough property.

    In talking to the salesman, he assured me that a demo on my property could be arranged.

    I called on three more occasions reminding them that they had agreed to a demo on my property, and three times they said "Sure, we can do that". It never happed in a total of four weeks.

    I called the Scag dealer (McGyver in Rayne) and, Southland Engine (in Lafayette), they jumped at the chance for a demo, and made it happen.

    I went with a Scag Cheetah. A great cut at speed cut my cutting time from 4.25 hours down to 1.5 hours. I was both surprised and very pleased.

    Hi Pooswa....

    Looks like it was a quick fix, and not a two week waiting period. Wishing you great service.

    One more cut for me and it will be time for the first oil change. I'm loving this stuff......
